Pitchforked to Glory

Posted · Add Comment


Another chance to do some simultaneous good to your palette and to the world of artisanal cheesemakers… The Trethowan brothers, Tod and Maugan, began their cheese-making careers on their family farm in Wales and have since moved to Somerset, near Cheddar Gorge, to  make raw milk organic slow matured cheddar and caerphilly. Both their cheeses were winners in the 2019-20 World Cheese Awards where they were judged 4th and 11th best cheeses in the world, respectively. Buy an introductory box of their Pitchfork Cheddar or Gorwydd Caerphilly direct from their website (£25 plus £5 delivery) or make up your own order.

Trethowan Pitchfork Cheddar, £7.87/250g, and Trethowan Gorwydd Caerphilly, £7.25/220g available from trethowanbrothers.com
